1. In which area is critique or feedback to be given?
Mainly composition and colour saturation (edited using curves in CS4) but any other pointers and observations are welcome
2. What were you hoping to achieve with this image?
I was going for a fashion-lifestyle feel, with vibrant and over-saturated colours and a nice big lens flare on the side to make things a little more interesting.
3. Under what circumstance was the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
The photograph was taken at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, Australia sometime in the early afternoon on a clear winter's day sometime in June when I was on vacation there with some friends. The shot was taken when I spied my friend adjusting her shoe and thought the pose pretty neat.
4. Thread-starter's personal thoughts about the image.
I think its a rather happy photograph and I like the vibrant colours and the way the lens flare turned out.
